There are few companies which will consider your experience. It is always better to keep the existing experience in your resume & you have to explain the valid reason at the time of interview.
Being a engineering graduate there are very less chances to get job into technical recruitment in good companies. Instead of waiting for good companies you try to get job in any company & you will gain the experience. At the same time it is better to understand the recruitment formalities process and procedure to tackle the interview
